The Acura TLX is a new model in Acura’s lineup that debuted at the New York Auto Show in 2014. It was a replacement for the Acura TL and TSX sedans and boasted the option of a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 209 horsepower or a 3.5-liter V-6 that was upgraded for 2016 to produce 290 horsepower. Improving performance even further was the option of Acura’s SH-AWD system for upper trim level models. The TLX didn’t see any other improvements for 2016, but it already sported a front and rear end similar to that of the Honda Accord, including the Jewel-eye LED headlights.

The TLX was first presented in concept form – dubbed the TLX Prototype – at the 2014 Detroit Auto show and, as you already know, it was only a few months later that the production model showed up. In short, it was a move by Acura to jumpstart its position in the Performance Luxury Sedan market because the TS and TSX just weren’t cutting the mustard and couldn’t gain traction in the market. At the end of the day, Acura did pretty well with the TLX, and it should be up for a facelift by 2018. Until then, let’s take a look at the 2015 to 2016 Acura TLX and everything that it brought to the table from Honda’s performance brand.

Updated 09/23/2015: Acura announced prices for the 2016 TLX, which will go on sale on September 24. Prices will range from $31,695 for the base TLX with eight-speed dual-clutch transmission and up to $44,800 for the 3.5L SH-AWD TLX with Advance Package.
